The Vision of NCCF is to eliminate cancer as the cause of more deaths during childhood than any other disease.

CureSearch National Childhood Cancer Foundation solely supports the work of the Children’s Oncology Group, the world’s premier pediatric cancer research collaborative, that treats more than 90% of all children with cancer in the U.S.

The Children’s Oncology Group (COG) unites the best of the academic and clinical research worlds to move the most promising treatments from the laboratory to clinical trial to standard of care.

This association of more than 5,000 dedicated experts in childhood cancer research and treatment are located at more than 200 leading Children’s Hospitals, University Hospitals and Cancer Centers in the United States. By working together, cure rates are improved at a much faster pace than any one individual or single institution could accomplish acting alone. This collaboration allows children with cancer to remain close to home for their treatment and care.

Only Research Cures Childhood Cancer

Fifty years ago, a diagnosis of childhood cancer was a virtual death sentence. Today, as a result of the research of the Children’s Oncology Group, the cure rate is 78% overall.

A high level of participation in clinical trials, combined with the quick sharing of information through the Children’s Oncology Group has led to phenomenal improvement in childhood cancer survival rates. However, too many children continue to die.

At a time when breakthroughs can be made in treating all childhood cancer and the quality of life for children with cancer improved, the continued decline in funding endangers the development of new clinical trials and threatens progress in curing childhood cancer.

Each day that cooperative group pediatric cancer research goes under funded the road to discovering new treatments and cures become longer, putting more children at risk.

The death of one more child to cancer is one too many.
